Patriotic Front officials in Lusaka province have pressured foreign affairs minister Given Lubinda to resign because he has been found guilty of treachery.
Lusaka District PF chairman Goodson Banda said this at a press briefing at the party secretariat today.
He accused Lubinda of having mounted a campaign in Kabwata constituency ahead of a possible by election.
Banda said Lubinda had recruited youths from UPND and some PF cadres in his campaigns who have since disclosed the move to the provincial leadership.
“I have reports of him campaigning and I have verified the reports to be true. We are not going to sit idle. He has been going round in the markets and people have seen him with their naked eyes. Some are UPND, ULP and so on but what I am saying is it is better he does so in the open,’’ Banda said.
He said Lubinda should not be allowed to travel out of the country again to represent government because he was a traitor.
